I presume you're talking about TortoiseSVN's revision graph? If so,
it's a known issue - the software has to go through the whole history
to build the graph, which obviously takes a while.

TSVN 1.5 will, from what I've read on the mailing list, cache this
data and will be *much* faster in building revision graphs. It'll be
released shortly after SVN 1.5 is released. There are also nightly
builds available which you can try out.
